first_imgMosa Hamadeesa is a stateless worker, originally from Palestine’s West Bank.  He was arrested by Immigration and Customs Enforcement on June 1 while at his home in Raleigh, N.C. He has resided there for 10 years without incident. Now Hamadeesa is being held in federal detention.Currently, Hamadeesa has an asylum case pending. This father of four children is the sole income earner for his family. His 9-year-old daughter, Nadine, has a rare form of cancer and is being treated at Duke University Hospital. Hamadeesa is an auto mechanic and serves the community through his hard work.ICE has filled out paperwork and plans to deport Hamadeesa back to Israel, where he has no authority to live or travel, and could likely be arrested or even killed. He has not committed any crimes inside the U.S. This case represents the Trump regime’s further escalation of anti-Muslim, anti-immigrant, racist attacks and increasing deportation orders.Hamadeesa’s family, friends and allies held a press conference and rally on June 7 in front of the Wake County Justice Center in downtown Raleigh. There, they demanded that ICE release him. The rally was organized by Muslims for Social Justice. Also participating were members of the Triangle People’s Assembly, the Movement to End Racism and Islamophobia, the Southeast Immigrant Rights Network, the Muslim America Public Affairs Committee, the Muslim American Society-Raleigh, Workers World Party and other organizations.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

first_imgU.K.’s National Grid takes big step into U.S. renewable energy market FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Star Tribune:Geronimo Energy, one of Minnesota’s most prominent renewable-energy developers, has been sold to a large British utility company for $100 million.In conjunction with the deal completed Monday, National Grid is also paying $125 million for a 51% stake in a joint venture that owns wind and solar projects being developed by a Geronimo affiliate. The other 49% is owned by the Washington State Investment Board.National Grid is known in this country for its regulated electricity and natural gas utilities in the northeastern United States. But the company is trying to extend its nonregulated business through its National Grid Ventures arm, of which Geronimo is now a part.The Geronimo deal marks National Grid’s entry into U.S. wind- and solar-energy development. “Geronimo was acquired to be our platform in U.S. renewables,” said Daniel Westerman, president of renewables and distributed energy for National Grid.National Grid, based in London, is one of the world’s largest investor-owned utilities with about $19 billion in sales last year, its business spread roughly evenly between Great Britain and the United States. The company serves about 20 million people in New York, Massachusetts and Rhode Island.Geronimo has developed — or is in the process of developing — a total of 2,200 megawatts of wind and solar power, which includes several projects in Minnesota. A megawatt is 1 million watts, and 2,200 megawatts is the equivalent production capacity of three to four coal or nuclear power plants — though wind and solar farms can’t operate constantly.More: Edina’s Geronimo Energy sold to British utility for $100Mlast_img read more

first_imgDay One: “The Deep Creek Deluge” – September 5th As we chill out after a busy summer at Deep Creek Lake/Wisp Resort and prepare for the epic paddleboard tour, the weather channel is forecasting flash floods for Western Maryland for the evening. The extended forecast for the rest of the week does not look much better: 6”- 10” of rainfall over the next 3 days. What a way to start out on a five-state, 24-lakes river stand up paddleboard adventure. The only positive from the weather report is that Hurricane Katia is most likely going to make a turn to the right and not come ashore in North Carolina later in the week. A friend from my days at Snowshoe Mountain, Jeff Gee, is joining me for the first 4 days of the tour. This tour is all about paddleboarding and relaxing. I am not going to let a little rain (no, a lot of rain) ruin the epic adventure.Our evening paddle launched at Deep Creek Lake State Park. This is one of the nicest parks in the Maryland Park system. We launched at the beach area, which is a great place to learn the sport of paddleboarding. Wisp Resort operates the beach concession at the park and offers paddleboard rentals, tours and instruction. This area of the lake offers a great 1 – 2 hour paddle to the end of Carmel Cove. Carmel Cove is a no wake area (powerboats must make no wakes) and the reward at the end of the cove is a narrow water trail into a marsh and past a couple of beaver dams. The water is clear and you can see some of the tree stumps from when the lake was built back in the 1920s. The air temperature was a cool 58 with heavy rain and the water temperature was 72. The water was calm, a rarity for the last unofficial day of summer; the cool rainy weather has even sent the locals of Deep Creek Lake seeking shelter. As I drove to the state park, even the large end of season party at the Honi Honi was dampened with the rain. Hopefully the weather will improve later in the week; otherwise it is going to be the Soggy Bottom Stand Up Paddleboard Tour.The photos were provided by another friend from the days at Snowshoe and now at Wisp Resort, John McCracken. We tried to convince John to join us for the rest of the tour, but to no avail. 1 2last_img read more
